Hi Eclipse UI team:

I'm trying to implement a "super" wizard which can invoke other wizards
step by step. I found the classes NewProjectWizard, MultiStepWizard,
WizardStep...etc in the internal package "org.eclipse.ui.intenral.dialogs"
and they are doing exactly what I want: invoking a list of sub wizards
seamlessly in the super wizard. I have the following questions about this
package:
1. this multi step wizard mechanism seems to be really useful, is there
any plan and can we request it to become public API soon?
2. before the public API is available, what is the risk in using this
internal package(by using it I mean subclassing those wizards and add my
own helper classes....etc. in my own package)? Is this internal package
being worked on and changed a lot? Is there any legal issues using
internal packages? I'm currently on Eclipse 3.0.1, I'm thinking to install
the newest Eclipse 3.1 to see what difference are there...But if someone
on this team can tell me instantly, it will be great.
3. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but when I created a simply test
plugin to invoke the NewProjectWizard, the last
MultiStepConfigureWizardPage ran into a null pointer exception, and never
render. I read the code and it seems the MultiStepWizardDialog is never
instantiated anywhere...When I tried my subclass wizard, same error
occurs. So I'm thinking to finish the implementation myself, which will
cost me much more time with our approaching deadline:(....So please let me
know if it is simply I missed something and actually this mechanism is
ready to be used...

I appreciate it a lot for your help!

I suggest asking this on the eclipse.platform newsgroup.
